Channel 9 digital is now back on actual Channel 9, so a UHF only 
antenna is not what you want.  There may be some channel 7-69 
antennas on the market, which could do the job and be somewhat 
smaller than a full VHF-UHF antennas.  I'm not sure if Stark 
Electronics is still in business in Manchester, or if they now only 
have the Worcester, MA store, but that should be a good place to get 
what you need.
